Joyce Kilmer’s original essay, a wonderful, tongue-in-cheek commentary on our proclivities toward gift giving and how we can give, in a more pleasing way, to our loved ones, first appeared in Joyce Kilmer: Volume Two: Prose Works in 1914 published by George H Doran Company. Its timeless insights are relevant even today. Enjoy listening!
